Block #1: Flower Burst by Jessie At Home! (link below)

This pattern is fun, easy, and very pretty! Not too holey, and not too stiff – just the right way to kick off the new year!
My square came out one inch short, so I added a round of hdc and that got me right to 12″. But everyone’s gauge and tension level are different so be sure to measure as you go, and check your gauge. Learn how to adjust for size HERE to make sure all your squares are the same size. Remember that the 12″ is measured across and up and down – not diagonally corner to corner.
I used a Furls US-J, 6.0 mm hook and Red Heart With Love, and my color scheme was as follows – Rnd 1: Holly Berry; Rnd 2: Hot Pink; Rnd 3: Tigerlily; Rnd 4 & 5: Lettuce; Rnd 6 & Rnd 7: Iced Aqua; Rnd 8: Holly Berry; Rnd 9: Hot Pink; Rnd 10: Tigerlily; Rnd 11: Fruit Punch.
